chamber of commerce in l.a. about how latinos are hurt by the economy. in part of that speech he's saying while national unemployment is 18.1%, hispanic unemployment is over 10%. but the obama camp is firing back with an ad that suggests romney is making a grab at something he cannot reach. >> romney only has a few short weeks to overhaul his positions and slow his declining popularity with latino voters. can he cover up his belief in self-deportation with a bold, new wallpaper choice? >> nbc news senior political editor mark murray is here to give us insight to this important voting bloc and we'll continue to walk it in the next 50 days here. mitt romney has the issue of self-deportation. a pretty tricky needle for him to thread, isn't if? >> it's really tough because mitt romney went so hard to the right during the republican primary process. during that republican primary season, mitt romney went after rick perry and newt gingrich for being too liberal when it came to illegal immigration. all of a sudden now that we're in the general election, mitt romney is trying to pivot back to the
setting, the hispanic chamber of commerce. bill: i think 11% is the unemployment rate nationally for latinos. if that number is right, then here is the next question we asked about improving the economy and creating jobs. president obama gets the clear nod at 59 to 33%. who do you trust handling immigration. again, 59 to 33%. why do they give president obama credit and not willing to go with governor romney on that. >> partisan identification among all groups has become powerful in this polarized era. there are two models. one successful, one not successful. the unsuccessful, bob dole and john mccain. the successful model george w. bush in for he got 40% of the hispanic vote. hispanics are growing every four years. this year thet be between 8 and 10% of the entire election threat thaeven electorate that turns out. he's doing the right thing but belatedly in reaching out to hispanics. governor barbour has said in the past couple of days this is the number one priority for republicans going forward to crash the hispanic vote. bill: this is also what we found in our polling. preside
